ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey’s Defense Ministry says Turkish ground troops are continuing their advance against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria.
A ministry statement early on Thursday did not provide further detail on the offensive but shared a brief video of commandos in action.

The ministry said Turkish jets and artillery struck 181 targets east of the Euphrates River since the incursion started.
